now our boss is very much a leadership figure here, and now it seems he is okaying homophobia.

And this is exactly the problem, "leadership" dont realise the power they hold and the capacity of harm they can cause. It p*sses me off solid.

Mmm, agreed, this is not appropriate for the office, and I certainly won't pass it on to anyone but a very select few... but I thought it was funny.

It is actually taking the piss with "the man" rather than the homosexual it decries...

agreed it is funny, agreed I won't pass it on (but I pass almost nothing on) and agreed it is uncool in office environment, but seriously, I'd rather get this than the religious crap some sends me.

agreed

i luckily get little of those these days. word has gotten around.

i think what got me up in arms, was the use of the term faggot. it's as bad as using kaffir. i cringe as badly at both. and in this day and age, you simply dont speak like that.
having walked pride on saturday, and being openly in support of gay rights, i thought it a bit hypocrytical not to actually say someting.
i think he does feel like a bit of a douche, but as the general south african male personality goes, he would rather die than admit he was wrong.

Oh, that reminds me...
At the SITP Wednesday someone said that at pride she saw a bunch of hot girls carrying a placard sayins Skeptic.za.org supports gay pride (from memory, so might be wrong). Was that you GCG?
